Anyone up for a Wild Camp

Would anyone be interested in a weekend's Wild camping .

The hidden valley {as I call it} is a great place to spend the night
next to a small stream with plenty of room to camp

You would need to bring everything with you that you wanted to eat and DRINK for the weekend
.

we can make a fire unlike most camp site's.

The nearest shop's and pub's are only 4 mile's away

easy to access , 20 minutes east after leaving jct 36 of the M6.

Couldn't help but notice the amount of people local to me (in West Yorkshire). Maybe a local meet could be arranged too - how about Squires at Sherburn???

As the weather is on the up I'll be going most weekends. I'll be easily spotted on my '84 Tenere.
